  • Notes 
    • "The Illustrious." Margrave of the Ostmark. Progenitor of the Babenberg dynasty in Austria.

      "In 994, Leopold travelled to Würzburg to mediate a dispute between his cousin Henry of Schweinfurt and Bishop Bernward von Rothenburg of Würzburg, one of whose knights Henry had seized and blinded. At a tournament held on 8 July, Leopold was hit in the eye by an arrow directed at his cousin. Two days later, on 10 July 994, Leopold died from his injuries." [Wikipedia]
